Abstract: People have severe problems in orienting in large-scale virtual environments and in acquiring survey knowledge of these environments. In our research, we aim at enhancing wayfinding in virtual cities (VCs), which are 3D models of (usually existing) cities. Here, the navigation problems apply in particular. To support navigation, we propose to apply concepts and methods of schematization to focus on the relevant information in representing VCs. To this end, we need to investigate processes which play a role in forming mental representations of city environments, processes that are used in schematizing virtual cities, and the interplay of these processes. We further propose to use a cognitive agent for evaluating different schematization principles applied to a VC by simulating wayfinding tasks.
